A weekly-ish blog sharing my series of collages about growing up in the South during the 1950s.
Great collage, Joelle. The penguins are a great touch-I love the expression on their faces. I remember when my parents bought our first air-conditioner. I love summer, it's my favorite season, except for the misery of trying to fall asleep on those sticky nights. The air conditioner happily took care of that.
I'm glad that you like the collage - is it possible to see that the "shag carpet" is just a bunch of penguins - from National Geographic? I remember my neighbor's air-conditioning unit more than ours - watching wrestling matches on TV with her dad in the very cold den.
I can relate to that. I remember we had two wall units when we were growing up and we all use to sleep on the floor just to be in the same room at night and be cool. I remember thinking it was heaven back then. This was way before I knew central air even existed. Thanks for the great memories. :D
The first time I experienced central air-conditioning on a regular basis was when I lived in the dorm at college. An unmentioned benefit of central air was that my hair wasn't as crazy curly, since the air wasn't as humid.
Ohh I love penguins! Nice one!
I'm glad you like the penguins - thank you for commenting.
I love the collage! It would definitely make a great story line for an advertisement promoting an air conditioning unit. Those penguins are just adorable.Naoki Dieter
Actually, part of this collage is taken from an advertisement for air-conditioners in an old magazine - I just embellished it. Thank you for commenting - and I'm glad you like the penguins. Sometimes it's easier to convey ideas using animals rather than people.
Penguins! They remind me of snow and the cool breeze, which are perfect for a winter fanatic like me. Though I get cold easy, I still prefer it over the hot season. Anyway, that is one impressive and creative collage! Hope to see more of your work next time. :)-Darryl Iorio
I'm glad you like the collage. It gets rather cold here in Kansas, and I usually get homesick for the South during January/February. I like warmer weather.
